We are a family looking for a full time live in nanny with at least 3 years experience.
We live in London but travel extensively for work and would like to take our children with us when we can.
We would like to find a nanny who is intuitive and responsible and can use initiative. Has the ability to be flexible and think on their feet. Somebody who has knowledge of teaching would be fantastic for when we are traveling, especially in the Montessori philosophy. We are looking to relocate to America and ideally would like to find a nanny to take with us but we also travel in Europe the UK and further afield for our work.
Our daughter is 5 and a ball of energy and fun and laughter. She is very creative and bright and eager to learn. She has a kind nature and loves to play and draw and sing, often loudly.
Our son is almost 7 months and is very laid back and sweet.
Please only apply if:
You have at least 3 years experience working with babies and children.
You have at least 3 written references that can be checked.
You have full visa's that allow you to travel beyond the EU and within.
You are CRB checked. (or willing to be).
You can speak and read and write English fluently as our daughter is learning to read and write.
You are able to cook healthy nutritious meals and enjoy food.
You can e mail a written note telling me about yourself with a full CV. (photo too if you like).
You must be energetic but calm and will need to be pretty fit. Enjoy a hectic schedule but be equally able to relax when we are at home and there is less to do. There will be some housework involved. Some errand running/shopping for the house. Essentially the job is taking great care of our children and being companions to them when we are working. There will be sole care as well as shared. Taking to school and picking up. Play dates and finding creative and fun ways to pass the time. We don't watch a lot of TV but like a good film or cartoon. A love of music and the arts would be nice but not essential. A sense of fun vital. Respectful boundaries and good manners around the children with a steady routine whenever possible seems to instill good behaviour all round.
You would have large private bedroom with en suite bathroom. We are offering £350 per 5 day week for 8-10 hours a day and two eves baby sitting when at home and not working full time ourselves. This will go to £450 a week when we are traveling or working full time and need you 12 hours a day. All travel and accommodation expenses paid for and of a good standard when on the road.
